One is not born into the world to do everything, but to do something.
(Henry David Thoreau, 19th century American author and philosopher)
Work is a privilege. Men were created to work, and little of value is accomplished without hard work. Working provides for one’s needs and earns the respect of others.
Make it your ambition to . . . work with your hands . . . so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12)
